Never use "cooking sherry." Its incredibly foul.

Its the alcohol.

Thanks Jenny...

Store Fresh Ginger in a Jar of Booze

You’ll Need
Firm, glossy, unwrinkled ginger
Clean screw-top glass jar
Vodka, sake, dry sherry, or rice wine
I especially like that idea, as most of my ginger use includes rice wine.

I honestly keep mine in the sherry in the fridge for months .... I always examine it though to see if it looks bad before I use it.

It's the alcohol. I never use any type of cooking wine.

I often get that also with burdock root which I buy regularly. But they're usually more like dry rot and are visible before you buy them.
